A tad pricy for the value

Nice course layout and in good shape. Was traveling through to town on my way back to Nashville. For around 75 dollars you could play a similarly nice course for 40-50 range. Only other complaint is no full range. Warm up into a net. But other than that I really enjoyed it. Hdcp 4

New management Beware

Lady at front desk was an idiot. Said new management wasnt doing golfnow anymore because it would get rid of the rifraf. I guess if you pay $35 instead of $60 your rifraf. Love this course but its nowhere near worth $60.

Very challenging course, that plays well even in difficult conditions.

Very well manicured golf course from top to bottom. Always a pleasure to spend anytime here.

Resort golf in Lexington, KY

Griffin Gate is in great shape right now! Definitely gives you a bit of a resort feel, in spite of being near major roadways. Would recommend getting out there this year!
